Description: With this, her third collection, Virginia Adair demonstrates again the richness and range of her exuberant, assured poetry. As accessible and powerful and wide-ranging as her first collection, Ants on the Melon, these poems rediscover old ground (including the spiritual concerns of Beliefs and Blasphemies) and explore new territory. The many love poems are bold and energetic; their lovers often make romance alfresco -- outdoors, at the seaside, on freeways (or "in the back seat of a roadster that threw us about/like a tin can in surf"). There is love between spouses and love for long-long-lost dates. The poet also addresses her own blindness -- she laments that she was "blind to abundance when I was not blind" -- and celebrates music in many forms, from Chopin to Elvis. Adair alludes to our literary and historical ancestors, examines the idea of infinity, and muses on memories of childhood as well as the nature of memory itself.

As always, Adair's voice is at once and paradoxically wise and impertinent, dazzling, and calm. Her life spans nearly all of this dosing century, and, at the edge of the new millennium, she helps us to look forward as well as back. Living on Fire is certain to bring an even higher level of acclaim and admiration to one of our greatest living poets.
